A couple who designed and built a Hamptons-inspired home in Boulder sold it for $7.9 million last month, earning the top spot among local home sales in April.
Dennis and Annette Martin, both of whom are architects, sold their newly built 5,665-square-foot home at 1810 Norwood Ave. on April 15 to Vinay Nair, according to property records.
Nair is the founder of New York-based The TIFIN Group, which invests in and operates financial technology companies, according to his LinkedIn.
The Martins purchased the property for $2.03 million under their respective trusts in 2017, according to public records. They designed a three-bedroom, four-bathroom home for the half-acre lot in the foothills and hired Jamey Valentine Construction to complete it in 2019.
The couple, who are also travel enthusiasts, were inspired by a Hamptons home that had a framed view of the ocean in the main room, and they wanted to create the same vision in the mountains, according to Luxe Magazine.
The contemporary classic house was built around a central courtyard to allow privacy from the street, and south-facing views of the Rocky Mountains can be seen from every angle, as well as in the main room. Modern features were added throughout, including heated floors, automated drapes, Wolf & SubZero kitchen appliances and custom tile and lighting.
Tim Goodacre with Goodacre & Co. Real Estate represented the Martins in the sale, and Zachary Zeldner with Compass-Boulder represented Nair.
